Before the MDM Developers group got going a few authors from the IBM development team posted on the MDM Workbench blog. Now that this group blog has a few posts as well it makes sense to combine the two, so we won't be posting to the separate MDM Workbench blog in the future.
This blog is for more than just the workbench but the biggest advantage is that it is much easier for anyone to contribute: any member of the group can write a blog post! If you have something to share that you think the community would find useful, give it a try. It's a great way to get early feedback on something that may turn in to a full developerWorks article over time. If you do write a post, just let me know as soon as you are ready for it to be published.
These are just a selection of some of the popular posts from the old blog:
And don't forget, there are still forums available for questions and discussions:

Requirements for Developer Machine
Developers working with the MIH Workbench require a large software stack. This requirement can
have resource implications for the hardware used by the development team. It is recommended that
each developer's machine meet the following specifications:
One of the following;
· Windows 7
· Windows XP
One of the following;
· IBM Rational Software Architect v7.5.4
· IBM Rational Application Developer v7
· InfoSphere Master Information Hub (MIH) Workbench plugin
· InfoSphere Master Information Hub distribution file MIH9
o VMware workstation v8
o One of the following
When possible, it is recommended that developers use a 64-bit version of Windows
running on a Virtual machine with up to 4GB of memory. MIH Workbench can work
with less powerful hardware, but productivity may be impacted by the demands of the
large software stack.

With MDM Workbench 9.0.x, you may find that web service deployment classes are not generated for data extensions. This causes runtime errors when invoking web services affected by data extensions, typically a class not found error referring to a class name with suffix _Ser, _Deser, or _Helper. Classes with these names should be generated when you run Prepare for Deployment on WSEJB projects. If these classes are not generated, the web service won't work.
To resolve this error, right-click on PartyWSEJB (you need to repeat this for each affected WSEJB project), select Properties. Select Project Facets. Check the facet: WebSphere EJB (Extended). Save changes, and run Prepare for Deployment on the WSEJB project.
I have added this information to the MDM Workbench FAQ. Thanks to Bark Bakker, for finding the workaround.
If you know of a good solution to a common problem, then please do add it to the MDM Workbench FAQ so that other users can benefit. And if you are having problems, please look at the MDM Workbench FAQ before posting to the MDM Workbench newsgroup, as you may find an answer there.
